Although e-commerce is essentially about selling your products and services online, it does encompass much more, including: marketing, delivery, after-sales service, handling complaints and a whole wealth of legislation, including:
- The Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002
- The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000
- Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance
Note: for guidance on The Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations 2002, read the DTI guidance on the Regulations.
E-commerce is an ever-changing and complex subject and there are many options available, from accepting payments and donations utilizing a third-party payment processor such as PayPal™, to a full shopping cart with payments taken via your own website. The right solution for you will depend on many factors.
